'Peanuts' Mother's Day special celebrates dads, states 'some kids have two moms'

A forthcoming Apple TV Mother's Day special based on the "Peanuts" comic strip states that "some kids have two moms" ahead of the Sunday holiday.

The new special is described as a "sweet Mother’s Day celebration of friendship and family.”

What are the details?

On Friday, Apple TV released the trailer for the upcoming Mother's Day special, which is titled "Snoopy Presents to Mom (and Dad), with Love."

In the trailer, characters like Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, Lucy, and more conjure up ways to celebrate Mother's Day — but for Peppermint Patty, whose mother is not in the picture, the holiday is difficult.

"I don't know why I get so upset," Peppermint Patty — who creator Charles Schulz confirmed is motherless in a September 1973 strip — tells her friend Marcie.

Marcie replies, "[B]ecause you miss your mom ... [Or] maybe you miss what moms do."

"My dad does all that mom stuff for me," Peppermint Patty continues. "For Mother's Day, I'm going to celebrate my dad ... There are all types of moms, right?"

Marcie answers in the affirmative, saying, "Of course. Some kids can have two moms."

“Even kids like me can have someone who acts like a mom," Peppermint Patty adds. "And it’s all those moms who deserve to be celebrated"

A news release from Apple TV states, "While the other kids are excited to celebrate the special day, for Peppermint Patty, it's just a reminder that she didn't grow up with a mom. With her good friend Marcie by her side, she soon realizes that real families come in all shapes and sizes, and that Mother's Day is an opportunity to thank that special person in your life who means the most to you. Meanwhile, Snoopy and Woodstock embark on an epic adventure to find Woodstock's long-lost mom."

The special is set to air Friday exclusively on Apple TV.
